We booked the motel for one night. It was a real motel. The shower head was good and it was hot. It was clean but it was very basic. If you are heading to Lava Beds you might want to keep going to Kalmath Falls.

After driving over an hour from Lava Beds Natl. Monument to reach Dorris, we arrived at the Golden Eagle with our written confirmation in hand (complete with assigned room number), only to be told there was no record of our reservation and no room available. The man at the front desk said the manager was not there and that he... More

Clean, basic comfort. Stay here when you come to explore the Klamath Basin/Tulelake Wildlife Refuges. Support business people who consciously work to provide an excellent product at a very reasonable price!

Excellent for what it is: a motel (not a hotel). Affordable, clean, and safe, with friendly folks running it. Dorris, CA is a bit noisy with trains and trucks, but that's not the motel's fault. The motel is a mere 4 minutes from The Lower Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge (and 8 minutes from the best spot to view bald... More

Looking at the room price I was expecting may be stained carpet, rundown room, bathrooms etc... But decided to stay anyway as it's close to the wildlife refuges where I wanted to take photos of bald eagles. Now I am glad I made that decision. My experience was nothing like I imagined. The room was way better than the rooms... More

Don't be fooled by the half decent looking photo on their website. Dreadful place, disinterested staff, stick to your feet carpets, shower only designed for people under about 5'2", horrible decor, paper thin walls and worst of all filled with loud, fighting, drunk and then snoring truckers. Stay here and forget about sleeping.

Good, clean motel, good sized room. Room had microwave and coffeemaker. Minimal breakfast provided but for the price can't complain. A general store across the road provided all we needed. Pleanty of eating places in town. Trains pass through Dorris during the night sounding their horns as they go - very noisy. Some guests left (noisily) early in the morning.
